Breaking up itself can be very saddening, but being told certain words during that breakup can even make it more hurtful. Words generally linger longer in our memories and can be a constant reminder of hurtful accusations and unreciprocated feelings. People differ when it comes to feelings and what person A might consider to be the worst set of words to be told during breakup might differ from what someone else considers to be the most hurtful.
Some Reddit users responded to a question about what words they found painful the most when they broke up. Their responses go to show that some people have even had it worse than a lot of people when it comes to break up.
A Reddit User Was Told There Was Another Person In the picture
According to throwaway868891, the lady told him that she hadn’t loved him in a very long time. She said the feeling she had for the other guy was more than what she had felt for him in years. He gave that as the reason why he broke off communications with her.
Another User Got A Spiteful Post
Rsoxgal36 said that the most hurtful statement anyone said to her during breakup at a stage when they were putting effort to work things out was that he did not think she was fully interested in the relationship (even though she actually was).

A Reddit User Was Given No Form Of Closure
For aaahhFakeMonsters, one of the most hurtful breakup actions is getting ghosted. He added that the relationship wasn’t a long one as it was just for a couple of months but he considered it to be a period long enough to have a conversation. According to the Reddit user, there is no fun in getting ghosted as it makes someone feel like there wasn’t any form of closure. Further, the user said that getting told mean and hurtful things upon breakup still helps for closure and helps one to move on as compared to being ghosted which only leaves a person wondering.
